About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10

We are located in the center of Little Gasparilla Island approximately 100 yards from the bay and 300 yards from the Gulf of Mexico. (See location map) From our home you can fish, crab, or shrimp off one of two private docks, search the miles of white sand beach for exotic sea shells, surf fish the beautiful waters of the gulf, or just relax and enjoy the gorgeous beach that Little Gasparilla Island is famous for.

Access to the island is by your own boat or there is a private water taxi available at a reasonable rate. This lack of a bridge makes LGI unique and adds to it's relaxed atmosphere. There are no paved streets only sand roads with the main mode of transportation golf carts and foot power.

We built this home for our family to use and it has worked perfectly for us and will for you too. There are 4 bedrooms all with king size beds(several can be separated into 2 ex-long twins) with 2 full baths and 2 half baths. There are porches on front and back and 2 decks off the second floor bedrooms. The living area is very open so everyone can be together whether cooking dinner or watching TV.

The house has everything you need to have a great vacation. From a kitchen complete with all appliances, pots and pans, and a complete selection of spices to beach chairs for relaxing on the beautiful white sand beach. Our house has it all!!

Downstairs is another large deck for relaxing and a large outside shower with hot and cold water.

If you want to rent a golf cart while you are on the island call LGI Carts at 941-815-7554.

Great space for our Family of teenagers. Comfortable and well laid out.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time relaxing and enjoying the beach. The house was great for our family of 6, 4 of which are teenagers. We enjoyed the decks during the morning and evening hours. We planned meals and supply needs beforehand which worked well. We did not rent a golf cart, preferring the 5-10 minute walk to and from the beach. The neighbors were very friendly. 4.5 out of 5. Would absolutely rent again.

Very nice home on a beautiful rustic old Florida island on the Gulf coast of Florida.

Little Gasparilla is great! The house has.everything you will need for a wonderful stay. The grill was put to good use. We have only two complaints. There weren't enough working beach chairs for the 7 of us. Thankfully we had brought 2 of our own. There wasn't a very good TV in the living area and we were there for the college football bowl game season. Need to switch out the old out of date TV for a flat screens. Other than that we loved the home and would highly recommend it. The back balcony was great for hanging out and sharing a meal. It would have been perfect if it was screened but they have citronella candles out there which helped. The beaches are amazing but I don't recommend it if you want to be constantly entertained. This is the place to come to kick back and relax.

Amazing vacation spot !

  • 5 of 5

We had a family Christmas vacation with over 23 of us staying in 3 different houses. Hands down this property was by far the most accommodating, best laid out, with wonderful space! The owners provided all the information needed to get there, be there and get around and were extremely helpful. There were decks all over that enabled us to spend all sorts of time outside. The whole family congregated there for a few dinners, and there was no feeling of crowdedness. A favorite spot was the deck off the dining-living area with it's picnic table, plenty of chairs, grill, - a great space for cards, games, and lots of fun. The walk to the beach, and or the dock, was easy and pleasant. We felt like we were not directly in someone else's back yard, so never felt like we needed to be worrying about bothering the neighbors with our merry making ! An amazing number of beach towels, good cooking ware, lots of spices, a detailed list of amenities, and lots of place to lounge around. We're already planning on a longer stay when our Army National Guard helicopter medic daughter returns from Iraq in a year! I would definitely recommend Sea Haven for a very comfortable stay !
